    Timely Topics Series


    Timely Topics is a series of opportunities to engage with subject matter experts on topics relevant to those who support and advise graduate students and programs. Every session is available to all UConn faculty and staff. We hope you’ll join us for the upcoming session:


    From Expectations to Evaluations: The Importance of Timely Feedback

    Please join us for a special Timely Topics session with Provost Carl Lejuez, designed especially for faculty advisors. After setting expectations with an advisee, the ability to provide timely and constructive feedback is critical. In this session, we will discuss the importance of feedback from advisors in student productivity and success, how to provide it with grace and empathy, how best to elicit feedback from your advisees, and what to do with the information you get. We will share templates that advisors may adapt for their own use.
